Jackie/Mary, you go girlies! Always good to see a thread take off. Own it! Pad and pencil great, but even better, take a friend to do the notes and the driving. Keep me posted on your progress, if you can. X Plum.
My husband will be with me to drive there and be with me at the appointment. He has been such a support through the whole experience this summer.
Will keep you posted when I know more.
Love Mary xx
Hi Plum haven’t really felt like crying somehow, am I strange? Have you heard about “dammit dolls” was given one by a local breast cancer charity along with some toiletries and lots of info. It’s a funny thing which you throw at the wall etc and shout “dammit” Very weird but quite good for relieving stress xx
Can think of stronger terms than 'damn it', but we are laaadies ( Little Britain). Seriously sounds good a charity has recognised the frustration. Never thrown anything in my life, but have felt urge of late. Bleepy tough, isn't it! P x
Thanks Plum, will be glad when 12 September arrives and I get my results.Hopefully won’t need any more surgery and it won’t have spread to the lymph nodes. I think I have felt so supported by my family and the hospital that I haven’t really worried that much. It will be a relief to know what happens next.
Thanks for all your support xx
You are being very brave Mary,mind you my tears didn’t come until after my operation which seems silly as by then it had gone..... but I guess it affects us all in different ways....
Stay strong xxx
Thanks v plum .. I am waiting for my results post a lumpectomy / breast reduction .. I think I will be having radiotherapy next so it’s helpful to hear about it .. chemo isn’t ruled out so I hadn’t dared to think too much what to expect but your post is useful as it was originally suggested I would have radio therapy and tamoxifen .. I was stage one at a family history annual mammogram .. we are each on a unique journey but information feels key to me to help me feel some sort of sense of control !
Well done you for pulling through your treatment and still finding the mental energy to come back and sharing good advice based on your own experience.
Wishing you the best.
